FASHION: First Day Fashion Challenge

It’s August, which means with a blink of an eye it’s going to be September and we will all be in back-to-school mode. From the shopping, to school supply checklists and getting back into a daily routine; I don’t know about you but I for one cannot wait. Bring on the early mornings, cereal breakfasts and sense of structure! So for those of you who truly know me, you know I wouldn’t back down to a challenge – especially a fashion challenge. So when we were approached to join a First Day of School Fashion Challenge with Walmart they didn’t even have to finish the pitch and we were sitting pretty, front seat […]

FEATURE: Timi & Leslie Diaper Bag

Second time around we know know better than to not buy a proper Diaper Bag. The over-sized purse that you’ve just managed to squish in all baby, toddler and adult daily necessities into, it’s just not going to cut it this time. Need I remind you how long it just took you to find the nursing cover while your screaming baby serenaded you. I mean a real quote on quote Diaper Bag, one that’s sole purpose is to make motherhood easy (and beautiful). Say hello to the Charlie bag by timi & leslie, make nice with Charlie people because he’s about to blow your mind.  Charlie is […]

FASHION: PinkBlush Maternity +Giveaway

It’s official, I’ve finally found a retailer for Maternity clothing that is everything I’ve been looking for. Clothing options that are on-point with the current styles, in regular and plus size and offer great deals; PinkBlush Maternity.   PinkBlush Maternity Website // Facebook // Twitter // Pinterest // Instagram Maternity clothing can be one of those things that can either make you unhappy with the fit or unhappily broke, and in a worst case scenarios even BOTH. With Sofia I didn’t buy a great deal of maternity clothing, each time I found something I considering buying I was either not 110% happy with it (more of a need driving me […]

PREGNANCY: New Balance Love + GIVEAWAY

So… remember when I said that Gestational Diabetes was a good thing? I made a list of the things I found that could be looked at as the silver lining to being diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes? And remember when I said one of those things could be a new pair of running shoes? Yeeeeeah I wasn’t blowing smoke people, this kid right here, she got a new pair of sneaks… guess what?! She also wants to be like Oprah and GIVE YOU A PAIR TOO! Good right? You see what I did there? Who wants a new pair of sneakers in perfect time for the active Summer months ahead? You know what […]

PREGNANCY: Shoes For Comfort & Style

Swearing under your breath every step you take because of a uncomfortable shoe choice is totally okay when it’s your first pregnancy, but when you have playschool ears around you most of your days, it’s probably best you don’t leave your comfort (and childs vocabulary) up to fate.  Today, for you, and for the sake of your children, I’m sharing my top 5 shoes that are not only crazy comfortable but ridiculously stylish. If I could live in Natives I probably would, and if you’ve bumped into me grocery shopping or even at the park you would think I actually do, but as much as comfort is my […]

FEATURE: The Avion Rockstar Life

Don’t get stuck looking in from the outside, you too can be treated like a Rockstar with Avion! For the past 3 years we’ve enjoyed the luxury of shopping like a Rockstar over the Christmas Holidays. HA! This is not a joke, the only difference between how I shop and Justin Bieber is that he has to stop for autographs (sucker!). When you’re an Avion card holder you get the luxury of many things, but one that I thoroughly enjoy each year, and if you ask Sammy maybe a little too much, is the Avion Holiday Boutique.  Setup in Metropolis at Metrotown, the Avion Holiday Boutique offers […]

EVENTS: Christmas Farmers Market {coquitlam}

I love to shop, this is no surprise here, and when I can manage to combine both shopping and supporting local businesses the excitement level goes almost near embarrassing. There is something that feels so good about knowing where your money is going after you’ve made the purchase. Better yet, handing your money to the person who actually put the time and love into making each item. I love it! I love nothing more! This is why Coquitlam’s Christmas Farmers Market means so much, I have a chance to not only check items off my list of gifts to buy, but also getting those feel good feelings from supporting local businesses. […]

FEATURE: Our JYSK Christmas Wish

JYSK is one of those stores for our family that keeps us from irritating each another beyond limitations while actually shopping together. Sofia is kept happy as a clam within the home decor section that she will always manage to find a bin of stuffed animals at and of course the art supply section. Hey! Did you know JYSK had such an amazing array of art supplies, including stretched canvases as low at $2.99? I know I didn’t, and considering how often I find myself there I should really start opening my eyes while I shop. Sammy stays quiet, but happy as he tallies up all the little life upgrades he finds that […]

FASHION: Black Friday Shopping Haul

As promised, I wanted to share with you all the amazing deals I got this past Friday at Guildford Town Centre. Here is why I find it so great, HELLO! CHRISTMAS SHOPPING DEALS. I mean I used to joke around about how genius it would be if a family could pretend Christmas was the day after boxing day, hitting the stores on the wild but oh-so-worth-it day of crazy shopping deals and get everyone’s gifts all in one day.  Did someone say $100 gift card giveaway? I would keep scrolling if I were you! This right here is why I love Black Friday so much, and my love for Guildford […]

FEATURE: Boots by SOREL. Family by me.

HIS: Old Navy Shirt & Jeans // Gap Toque & Scarf (similar) // Boots c/o SOREL HERS: Old Navy Shirt, Vest (similar), Jeans & Necklace // Boots c/o SOREL THE LITTLE: Joe Fresh Sweater & Skirt // Over the Loom Socks // Boots c/o SOREL It used to be that we’d have to compromise on our fashion in the poor weather; you know what I mean, the cumbersome basic black boot that could easily be shared between male and female family members without any question. Yeah those! We all had them, because what else was there? We’re excited (and relieved) to share that we’ve partnered with SOREL this winter to show you just how stylish fall and winter […]
